Recto: Several drafts of legal documents. Item #1: Legal document regarding a business partnership (but not the original partnership agreement). Location: Fustat/Cairo. Dated: end of Ṭevet 5550 AM = January 1790. Between Yiṣḥaq b. Shelomo Aripol who lives in Fustat/Cairo and Moshe b. Nehoray Torongi (?) who lives in Istanbul ["Costa"]. Also involves Yaʿaqov Bibas. Item #2: Drafts of a document regarding a partnership between the same Moshe Torongi and Yaʿaqov Bibas. Item #3, at a right angle: Draft of a betrothal document for Seʿadya Angel (?) b. Avraham and Ghāliya bt. Ḥayyim Madikhah (?). Verso: Contains some text from a legal document with 5 elaborate witness signatures (but at least two belong to the same person--perhaps someone is practicing their signature?). Also contains at various angles an account, a draft of a letter, and two medical recipes for vaginal suppositories to promote survival of sperm.
